A Prussian soldier and writer, von Clausewitz is said to have distilled Napoleon into theory. Perhaps best known among his numerous pronouncements is that war is a continuation of politics by other means. His theories and observations included in this work have been heeded by military strategists for nearly 200 years. Most have considered this to be the "Bible" of military strategy and tactics. This abridged version of Clausewitz's magnum opus follows the text of the New and Revised Edition (edition by F.N. Maude in 1908) of Col. J.J. Graham's translation. Of the original three volumes, this version includes all of Volume I (except for the last chapter on night fighting) and six of the nine chapters of Book Eight of Volume III (The Plan of War). The editor's objective was to select those portions which most closely relate to our own time.



"What makes On War so timely is that, unlike most military strategists and theoreticians, Clausewitz did not advocate war or recommend specific courses of action, but merely thought to describe war's character and dynamics." ( Harper's Magazine)

Horrible reader

I hear extensively many audio books while driving in my car. This book probably is very good and the author of course is quite famous but the (female) reader has such a horrible voice and it's so hard to focus on what she says that is it impossible to hear the book. claimed my money back. DS
